ITV presenter Lorraine Kelly has been showing off her new slimmed down figure recently. Dropping two dress sizes, the star says she now feels “happier, healthier and more confident”.

The Scottish presenter, who was recently spotted enjoying the tennis at Wimbledon, has shed an amazing 1.5 stone to achieve her “ideal” weight. In the process, she has swapped her size 14 clothes for a size 10.

Revealing her weight loss journey in an exclusive interview with, 62-year-old Lorraine explained she gained weight during the Covid pandemic. She said: “I comfort ate and would just find myself hovering around the biscuit tin and the fridge for all sorts of goodies.”

Chocolate and biscuits were a problem for the star, it seems. She said: “Me and Steve would have a massive, big chocolate plate every night. It started off quite small but ended up being huge! I was going through packets of biscuits and unhealthy grub.”

Getting back on track meant making some changes. She said: “We all know what is good for us, we all know what we are supposed to eat, so it is about getting that balance right.

Exercise has been a big part of the presenter’s weight loss progress. She now walks 10,000 steps a day, which she achieves by taking her dog, Angus, out for a stroll. She also turned to a weight loss programme, which the star says made her weight loss “dead easy”. By using the WW app and doing 10,000 steps a day she struck a balance. She said: “I wasn’t doing as much exercise and mindlessly eating, just eating for the sake of eating. Now I’ve got much more of a balance.”

She added: “It isn’t a stupid, silly diet because diets don’t work, as we know. It’s just about making little changes. I’m not bored or miserable and thinking about food all the time, just eating well.”

Sharing her tips for success, Lorraine said: “The thing I do actually, well Steve does because he is a much better cook, he makes a massive bowl of really spicy vegetable soup on a Sunday and I have that for my lunch Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and then he makes another one.

“I don’t have it every day for lunch but I find that it really fills you up if you are hungry and a banana isn’t going to do it for you.

“That’s my tip, that and not to beat yourself up if you do have a chocolate biscuit, for goodness sake it’s not the end of the world!” However, she does add that it “doesn’t mean that you have to have 20 bags”. She explained: “Just say, right, I had that, big deal, move on. There is nothing wrong with having a biscuit with a cup of tea, it’s fine, it’s just about getting the balance.”

Lorraine airs on ITV weekdays at 9am.
